Jake Something recalls Bobby Lashley going to bat for him.

The IMPACT X Division Championship is going to be on the line at Sacrifice on 3/5 when Jake Something challenges the current champion Trey Miguel.

Jake first began working with IMPACT in 2017 and his first match in the company was against former 4-time IMPACT World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley. After their match, Lashley took Jake around the backstage area and repeatedly told people in IMPACT that they should be signing Jake. The current IMPACT talent told this story while on Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore Podcast.

Let me see, 2018 [is maybe when IMPACT Wrestling offered me a deal]. The actual year is shaky. It was right before Christmas though, but by that point, I had been doing work with them for about a year straight. When they were still in Orlando, I hopped in a car, like hoping to get on and then I had a squash match against Bobby Lashley and he liked it a lot so he kept pulling me over to people, telling them to sign me and stuff and he was being very awesome and then I got booked on like the next loop maybe and yeah, that was when [Jeff] Jarrett and everybody was still there and then… then they started traveling a little bit and I would do the shows that were nearby, with Cody [Deaner] one of the times and then ah, months later, it kind of just — not super random but I got a phone call from Scott [D’Amore] and I was like, ‘Oh! What’s this?’

Along with Jake’s title match, there are going to be four other championship matches on the night and to get a look at the Sacrifice match card, click here.
